Fish & Game magazine is a must read resource for anglers and game bird hunters. Through stories, local knowledge and up to date information, the magazine will inform and equip you in the pursuit of your chosen quarry.

Fish & Game NZ Magazine began in 1993. Bob South became the editor in 1994 after a direct approach from then national Fish & Game councillor Tom O’Connor with a desire to have his organisation involved in a world class national publication.

The first F&G ‘Special Issue’ was a collaboration between the Fish and Game Council and the publishers to add regional content and mail out to licence holders to better communicate Fish & Game's work and objectives.  

Hamish Carnachan took over as editor from Bob South for a number of years before Fish and Game bought the magazine back from the publishers. Fish and Game ceased the quarterly commercial editions and continued to produce the two special editions in March and August each year, continuing a 27 year tradition for game and fishing licence holders.
